Specific Real Energy Production

This chart was made as a compilation of the information provided by charts in prior posts by Mr. Manfred Jacobi on vmisenergy:

Per Mr. Jacobi:

“In a nutshell, in order to obtain the same production figures as nuclear power installations one needs to install almost seven times as much capacity of solar PV and more then three times as much capacity of wind generating power.”

Mr. Jacobi is making an excellent point and, if he will forgive me for usurping his information, I believe the compilation chart helps to  illustrate the point.
